CONTINUING THE CAMPAIGN FOR CLEAN ELECTIONS
Momentum Builds to Get Money Out of Politics
While many will say that the “Clean Elections” proposal (aka public funding of
campaigns) is not as urgent as the 2014 races, it is important to know that initiatives,
such as the “Clean Elections,” proposal take time to build. Your ongoing support is
important. John Hartley is steadfastly leading the charge.
Clean Elections Campaign - Alert/Update
We have a unique opportunity before us. The U/T has published two letters in the
last two days in favor of clean elections or public financing of elections. These
letters were written in response to the latest scandal of big money donors trying to
influence our local elections.
We have a chance to get more letters and more public awareness of clean elections,
which in my view, levels the playing field of politics, allows people to run for office
who are not wealthy, has been effective in electing more women and people of color
in the states of Arizona and Maine where clean elections have been in effect since
2000, and limits the influence of big money donors.
Can you write a letter to the letter to the U/T in response to these
two letters? The U/T counts letters. The more written on an issue,
the more they print. All you have to do is put some thoughts
together, include your name and neighborhood and daytime phone
number (they will not publicize your phone number, they use it to
call you to see if you are indeed the letter writer) and send it by e mail to
email@example.com. You can take time to write a well written, well thought
out letter or just dash off a few lines!
Second, we need your help in reaching out to groups, research and whatever you
would want to do to further the cause of reforming our political system through
You are always invited to our monthly coordinating committee
meeting which we currently hold on the third Tuesday of the month at 6pm. The
next one will be on Tuesday, February 18 at 6pm. - John Hartley
